GBTA Establishes New Designation Requirements

January 06, 2012 - 10:30 AM ET

By David Jonas

The Global Business Travel Association will require holders of CCTE, SMMC and CGTE designations to obtain "20 continuing education units within a three-year period" to maintain their credentials, a spokeswoman confirmed. The three-year period will begin Dec. 30, 2012. Such credits can be collected by attending GBTA conferences and participating in educational programs.

As part of the formation of the GBTA Academy, announced in 2011, the association said it would issue no new CTE, STP/SBTP, CCTE, CGTE or SMMC certificates. Holders of those designations instead were welcomed into the GBTA Academy.

"This requirement gives so many more opportunities to all designation holders for their ongoing involvement," according to the spokeswoman. "You need to keep track of all the continuing education units earned and submit the renewal application form after all 20 CEUs are completed. As soon as the application is processed, you will be notified if the application was approved, denied or needs additional CEUs."

The continuing education application processing fee is $125.
